Childhood Obesity Intervention – MEND

MEND page banner

Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do it!

The YMCA of Greater Williamson County is excited to be offering a FREE childhood obesity prevention program in partnership with MEND.

Each program lasts 10 weeks and meets twice per week, typically a weekday evening and Saturday morning. Parents must attend with their child.

MEND combines 3 key elements of safe, effective weight management and sustained lifestyle change:

  1. Healthy eating
  2. Regular physical activity
  3. Behavior change.

Children and families who attend the MEND Program learn important skills and knowledge to help them manage their weight and feel fitter, healthier, and happier for the rest of their lives.

Children must be ages 7-13, overweight or obese, and may not be suffering from diabetes or debilitating asthma. Physician consent must be granted before program participation. One parent must be able to participate with their child in each session. Call the Hutto Family YMCA at 512-846-2360 or email us at HuttoFD1@ymcagwc.org for more information or to enroll.

Take the first step as a family and begin learning how to lead a healthy lifestyle!
